The Fix on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter
Nineteen months down, five to go!
In a presidential campaign that hasn't stopped making news for the better part of the last year and a half, the decision by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) to formally step aside in favor of Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) on Saturday gives The Fix a rare opportunity to slow down.
And, when we slow down, we get reflective about the cool (and colorful) community we have built on The Fix since we started this thing up way back in October 2005. In the first post ever on the site, we emphasized the interactive element of the blog and urged you to get involved.
Man, have you responded!
Seeking to build on the success we've had in creating an online community of political junkies (Fixistas unite!), we've expanded into all sorts of social networking territory of late -- The Fix is nothing if not current -- and wanted to bring you up to speed on it.
First of all, we now have a YouTube channel devoted to posting FixCam videos as well as the occasional bonus video for subscribers. If you want to subscribe, just go to the channel and hit the yellow "subscribe" button. The Fix sat down (virtually) for an interview with the guys -- and gal -- from YouTube to talk about how video is changing journalism and how we incorporate it on the site. (Do yourself a favor and bookmark Citizen Tube, You Tube's politics vlog.)
On Facebook, The Fix has long had a personal page but we've just recently established an official Fix fans page where Fixistas can congregate, kibbitz, complain or cherish their membership in the world's most exclusive club. (Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration.) But, check it out anyway. (It's the best way, going forward, to get in touch with me online.)
Thus ends the shameless self promotion. Have a great Sunday!
